Special Webinar Session
Progress Report on Closing the Attestation Gap
Monday, December 7, 1:00pm-2:00pm EST
Enterprises, Contact Centers, and Voice Service Providers are often not in a position to obtain their own SHAKEN certificate.
If they get their phone numbers from multiple service providers, their calls may not receive the highest attestation, and can be inadvertently blocked or mislabeled.
Carriers have various options to address these challenges including TN Database, Delegated Certificates or a STIR certificate.
These approaches all rely on the originator of the call and the telephone number to be trusted by other members of the ecosystem.
Join this session to understand:
- How can carriers enable these customer to receive favorable call treatment?
- What approaches are gaining traction?
- How can carriers be sure they are admitting trusted players into the ecosystem?
